Matinée meets The Hardy Group

Today Matinée gave a short introduction to our film screenings to The Hardy Group in Derby.  The Hardy Group meets once a month at St. Peter’s Church in the centre of Derby, and welcomes over 100 people living with dementia, and their carers to a great social morning of quizzes, presentations, refreshments, and also organises social outings and coach trips for its members.

We had them singing along with Black Hills of Dakota from the film Calamity Jane – which is the next screening at QUAD on April 25th.

We met in St John’s Church Hall on Canal Street in Long Eaton which has a great room for the films, and our volunteer, Mandy, in the kitchen, kept the tea, coffee and cake flowing for everyone before the film, and during the interval!
